Have searcehed high and low for answer to this, but haven't found one.
Problem: I want to use a subdomain (blog.archivism.ca) of my domain (archivism.ca) as my tumblr custom domain.
I created the CNAME record and it is successfully pointing to domains.tumblr.com as it should. However, when I visit the url (blog.archivism.ca) tumblr spits out a "not found" error. MXLookup shows that while the cname is correct, http for that domain is not resolving. From my googling, I've discovered that the DNS side of things is handle by the dns record I created, I still need to handle the http side of things. I just don't know how to do this with Apache, and everything I've read doesn't seem to address this specific problem. I just created a new file in /sites-available/ with the following info, but it is still not working:
NameVirtualHost *:80 <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName blog.archivism.ca ServerAlias domains.tumblr.com </VirtualHost>
Amypme have any idea where to go next? I assume that I don't need to specifiy the document root as that's irrelevant to tumblr.
